Join Ted and Mona in the second installment of the Snapshots of History series! In 36 chapters, Ted and Mona explore medieval history from the fall of Rome to the rise of colonialism. They make stops around the globe in places like Imperial China, the Holy Roman Empire, the Aztec Empire, the Islamic Empire, Heian Japan, the Ghana Empire, the French and English Monarchies, the Byzantine Empire, and more!
The back-and-forth dialogue between Ted and Mona keeps this book fun and engaging and provides opportunities for budding readers to read along. Their dialogue is modeled on the classical teaching style, and encourages deep thinking and probing questions.
In this book, Ted and Mona are joined by two new friends, the overly enthusiastic art-loving twins Arty Arthur and Literary Lily!
